What is a Solid Wall Surround?
June 21, 2017
A solid wall surround is a shower system made from a single piece. In other words, it’s a shower which has no gaps or potential weak points where moisture could penetrate. Solid wall surrounds are popular in hotels and many modern residencies, owing to the fact they take up less room and are easier to maintain over time.
Why Install a Solid Wall Surround?
With the knowledge of what a solid wall surround shower is, now lets take a look at why you should install one.
Cleaning your bathroom is easier than ever with solid shower systems. With a one-piece shower surface, you can clean your bathroom easier and much faster. Solid walls have no areas where moisture can seep through like in tile where the week point would be the grout between tiles. This helps avoid the build-up of mold and keep your bathroom squeaky clean.
Not only will the installation of a solid-wall surround save a home-owner money, it will also look great too. Typically, a solid wall shower surround will come in the timeless color of white. While this may seem limiting in the area of color customization; the truth is that white goes with literally any style bathroom. Not to mention, the color doesn’t fade.
Additionally, a solid wall shower offer gorgeous appeal because it can be updated according to taste and new trends. By simply replacing the shower fittings and faucets, the bathroom can be transformed and the same seamless solid-wall will remain.
Solid wall surrounds are extremely durable shower systems. They are made from materials which are resistant to cracking and breaking. Over time, your home will begin to settle and if you have a tile shower this can cause cracks in the grout. Cracks which need to be repair quickly to avoid moisture issues. With a solid-piece shower surround, the surround itself will be able to avoid these issues altogether, creating a practically maintenance free shower.
